Well she isn't as interested in the "fire" as Pierson,

Pierson is a bit of a pyromaniac. He loves having a campfire.
We have had such a wet summer that we had only two or three fires as opposed to last year when we had at least one a week.
In the end it only took one word...

Apparently we have a squirrel nest behind our basketball goal. Occasionally we can hear it scratching around. I thought it was cool and tried to see the squirrel. Pierson thought it was interesting and stood around for a while to see if he could get a glimpse.
Here's to hoping that squirrel makes an appearance soon. :)

I can't believe that I forgot my camera when we went to the airport!! But what an exciting evening! It was a fun celebration with friends and family waiting for them to de-board the plane. There we all stood waiting for them to come though the security barrier. We watched the majority of their flight members exit, and we waited... You might ask yourself how we knew the strangers walking through were on the M7 flight?
Well... those of us who were there to greet the M7 were made up of Caucasian adults with mostly international children who were all holding up welcome home signs. I guess it was obvious. Several strangers said, "Their coming!" or "Their right behind us." One woman even said, "They stopped in the bathroom!"
We laughed knowing what a spectacle we were but oddly appreciated their consideration to let us know the M7 had actually been on board and were about to make their way to where we were!
It was chaotically fun! Once the M7 arrived there were 13 kids who were all tired as it was 11:00pm, 5 of whom were deliriously tired, running around playing tag. There was an equal amount of adults hugging and chatting. Yeah we stuck out a little bit but I don't think anyone minded. However it was time to get the M7 home. So we left. I drove the Grandma's back to the M house. We unloaded luggage and then the C4 family headed to a hotel for the evening
Thanks M7 for the cool gifts!
We are so glad you are home and pray you have now fully recovered from your jet lag! We can't wait to get to know Natalie even better!
